Looking on the Weather Channel tonight and they are naming snow storms. When did we start naming winter snow storms? There's one going to hit SD tomorrow named Walda, WTF?

AFAIK, it's just a weather channel gimmick.
I wish they'd give it up already.

Why your weatherman is protesting the name nemo
"The National Weather Service does not name winter storms because a winter storm's impact can vary from one location to another, and storms can weaken and redevelop, making it difficult to define where one ends and another begins," National Weather Service spokesperson Susan Buchanan told The Wire.

what a crock, what was wrong with the way we did it before, the 67' storm, the 79' storm?

We haven't.

The Weather Channel has. Hype and panic is easier to sell with a proper noun assigned to it.

Maybe that is why TWC was dropped by some TV channel provider (Direct TV?).

Yankee's leaving New York, They need an excuse.
Sometimes it's better to go through the storm than around it.

I think the real meteorological academics have condemned TWC for it. No standardization.

Coleman must be pretty proud as to what his channel has become.

Just to try and make them as important as Hurricanes.

Anyone remember the "No Name Storm" in March of 93?
Let us never forget, government has no resources of its own. Government can only give to us what it has previously taken from us.
